Last week, a major move happened in the Nigerian entertainment industry that is being kept hush hush but it’s our job to let y’all know what’s going on.
MTN Nigeria has suspended the ambassadorship of many of the top celebrities. With the exclusion of regional ambassadors, Project Fame ambassadors including Iyanya, Praiz and Chidinma, and other ambassadors like Falz, Skales, Tekno and Nkem Owoh, everyone else has been suspended.
MTN told them that they had no roles for them at the moment and didn’t want to renew their contracts immediately. So right now, everything is pending.
Their reason? It may not be unconnected with the fact that the giant telecommunication company is paying over three hundred billion Naira fine to the Nigerian Govt for not disconnecting subscribers when they were supposed to. Guess they want to set priorities!
